Chiron in Aries, Girl on Fire

People with Chiron in Aries in their birth chart have had to deal with personal injuries, both physical and psychological. And yet, these people are not your regular victims. Others may not even be able to tell that these people have had deep injuries.

This is because Chiron in Aries people shake off their pain and move forward quickly. They’re extremely resilient. These are people that have friends who feel their pain more than they themselves do. Chiron in Aries people will be the ones telling you to “suck it up” when you’re hurt.

Chiron is about pain and healing. People with Chiron in Aries heal quickly, without much thought, blazing trails even while warm blood drips from their open wounds.

You may think that they’re insensitive, until you find out just how many painful, damaging experiences they’ve had. Then, you’ll wonder how they even survived.

Speculation On Why Chiron in Aries is Like That

The generation born between 1968 and 1977 has Chiron in Aries. This was a turbulent time period. Children born and growing up during this era had to deal with both cultural and economic struggles. The had to deal with the effects of the Vietnam War, and with the War protesters. Many of these children were born to mothers who smoked and used drugs for recreation. This is the first batch of children born to mothers who were not overwhelmingly stay-at-home moms. Increasingly, moms were not home. Many of these children were supervised by the television in their homes.

That era was a time of breaking free from the traditions of the past. Previously, Chiron was in Aries from 1918 to about 1927, during the so-called “Roaring Twenties.” The 1920s in the US were also a time of breaking free. Women were able to exercise more freedom from traditional roles. Yet, the 1920s were also conflict-filled. Bitter conflicts between all kinds of people were flaring throughout the United States. Religion, immigration status, race, alcoholic preference, and home address were all sources of debate and contention among neighbors. Children born during that era heard a lot of trash-talking and arguing. Then, they were hit with the Great Depression in their youth.

They learned quickly to simply get up, and carry on.

People with Chiron in Aries are tough as nails. They were forged in fire. They grew up in the school of hard knocks, whether in the 1920s, 1930s, or 1970s. Whether they were born wealthy or not, they grew up in an era that was not very kind to children. If you are one of those, and you’ve made it this far, pat yourself on the back. You deserve it.

You’ve been hurt, a lot. You’ve learned that you must simply get over it and carry on.

Chiron in Aries people don’t have to experience the same problem more than once to learn from it. If you ever have the chance, try to get a Chiron in Aries person to talk about their past injuries. It will not be easy, since they, so quickly, move on from their pain. But, if you can get them to talk about it, be sure to listen. You may learn some wonderful lessons. Listening to their experiences can help you heal your own pain.

You’ll be surprised at how the same person who told you to “suck it up” can actually help you through some tough times. People with Chiron in Aries radiate enough healing energy to touch those around them.

Actually, in Aries, Chiron doesn’t just heal, but it can regenerate and revive.

For you to experience and feel the Chiron energy in your life, Chiron must be placed strongly in your birth chart. Chiron is strong in one of the angular houses, or in aspect with a personal planet. The House in your birth chart that Chiron is in will be the place where you’ll experience the Chiron energy the most. As with any planet, the energy will be felt especially strongly if it’s on your Ascendant. Chiron conjunct the Ascendant will manifest in robust, and sometimes literal, ways, which we’ll see in the following example.

Nancy Kerrigan, Chiron Conjunct Ascendant in Aries

Nancy Kerrigan, the American Olympic figure skater and champion, has Chiron in Aries. It’s in conjunction to her Ascendant with an orb of 3 degrees and 14 minutes. As a little girl, Nancy played hockey with her brothers. That sounds literally, physically, tough. In 1994, while Kerrigan was training for the Olympics, her figure skating competitor hired a man to attack Kerrigan. The attacker hit her on the knee with a police batton. In the words of Wikipedia:

Kerrigan recovered quickly from her knee injury and resumed her intensive training.[1]


Seven weeks after the attack, Kerrigan skated what she considered to be the best two performances of her life.[2]

Yes, people with Chiron in Aries heal quickly, and they move on. Other people take time to heal while they ponder the lessons of hardship. Not Chiron in Aries. With them, it’s “up and at ’em.”

What Chiron in Aries Teaches Us

People with Chiron in Aries can teach us how to quickly move beyond our pain.

Chiron will enter Aries again in April of 2018. We’re about to begin spawning a new batch of tough guys. The babies born between 2018 and 2027 will, no doubt, be born during widespread cultural conflict, just like with Chiron in Aries of the past. It’s easy to see similarities between the cultural issues of the 1920s, and those issues which are brewing now. Children born into an atmosphere of conflict learn, very quickly, how to shake it off.

Tough times never last, but tough people do.[3]

    Thanks a bunch! I have natal Chiron in Aries and indeed even when I don’t feel so strong, people around cannot even tell???? It’s incredible!!! I used to resent it but I now get that I still radiate vitality even when I don’t feel vital lol…thanks you for putting it plainly “People with Chiron in Aries radiate enough healing energy to touch those around them”

  2. I have Chiron in Aries but this does not describe me at all….almost the exact opposite actually.

  3. Shelley on said:

    I have Chiron in Aries in the twelfth house. I haven’t found a lot of info on the difference between the influences of the actual sign vs. the house placement. I’m already feeling the effects of my Chiron return. It feels like it’s going to be a rocky ride!!!

  4. HendoJo on said:

    Chiron in Aries conjunct the ascendant but in the 12th house; mars in the first conjunct the ascendant; Saturn in taurus in the first. Tough.

  5. Shelley on said:

    Yes, it’s very tough- I agree!!!

  6. I have two Chiron in Aries children and plenty Chiron in Aries clients and I have not found your article very accurate?????? maybe you should rethink it?

    • I am Chiron in Aries, and this is totally accurate. Ive never read up on this, but have established in my life that my pain and trauma in life proves healing to others. I don’t lie talking about the life I’ve been through, and wonder why 1 person was given so much pain…but this explains it. It explains when I do share a little bit of myself, how people draw healing from it.

      • Yes spot on. I come off as insensitive. Probably because I was physically abused, emotionally traumatized, and I survived…So yes, it is accurate. I have Chiron in Aries. I get over it (though I may put it in a compartment) and move forward. I have feelings but if I dwelled on them, it would devastate me. I move forward. I do care about others feelings but I cannot express it.

  7. With Chiron moving into Aries again, what does this mean for us Aries?

  8. Michelle on said:

    Good article and sounds very accurate to me. My Chiron is in Aries 6th house close to my descendant. I am very good at compartmentalising my pain and putting it on a shelf to deal with later, as I help everyone else during a time of crisis. I am close to my Chiron return and this habit is not working for me anymore, I think it’s time to put me first as this is just not working anymore. The other thing I find myself doing is allowing my authentic self to come through.

  9. Antoinette Simms on said:

    This fits me to a complete T. Wow! ☺️ .

  10. Sophie on said:

    Thank you for this! It’s so relevant and true for me as I’m in mine right now and have been the last 2 years. I’m blessed to be a Healer in a major city and I’ve always wondered how I can do what I do and why I’ve experienced so much difficulty in my life. Your article makes perfect sense to me why I did. It was a question I’ve been asking myself for years and especially this past year. My friends often tell me that I always seem so strong and keep going no matter what I’ve gone through and ask me how. I never had a good answer, I just kept moving forward. This Chiron return; however, was tough though and I’m glad it’s just about over (AND it’s probably why I’ve finally received a clear answer at this time too).

    Thank you for sharing your wisdom and doing what you do!!

    I don’t have Chiron in Aries, but my Sun is 2°54′ Aries and my natal Chiron is square at 2°31′ Cap. in my 12th. In Jan.1970, I was skiing in Marquette, Mich (where I went to NMU) when I hit a tree stump under a foot of powder snow. My ski bindings were frozen and didn’t release. Consequently, the ski spun and shattered my right leg in at least 9 places. I ended up in a full length cast for close to 9 months. My spirit was shattered as badly as my leg. At the time of the accident, Chiron was at 2°40′ Aries. However,once I got out of the cast and viewed what was left of my leg, I was determined to recover all my leg muscle and strength come hell or high water. I started doing Yoga and joined a gym, also started learning Astrology btw. 2 Years later I spent the summer hiking the Continental Divide trail with one of my best friends, which to this day is one of the greatest experiences of my life. Fast forward to today, and I see Chiron is currently at 2°18′ Aries… And I wonder what to expect from Chiron this time around… And yes, if anyone wonders I do still ski, after all, I am an Aries. But these day’s I watch out for the deep snow!

  12. THis is so true for me, unfortunately, from physical injuries to have post traumatic stress syndrome due to the mobbing at my work place. But I learn how to heal myself and I became even stronger.
    Thank you for the article!

    • Doug Downs on said:

      So by your answer I assume you don’t have any thoughts regarding transiting Chiron conjoining my natal sun this time? Or is it that this time well see what I learned from the accident I experienced last time? I wish you had been more clear. But maybe I could’ve been too. This wasn’t an “article”, it was one of the most pivotal points in my life.

  13. Michelle Sicilio on said:

    Very interesting article! I have son with the Chiron in Aries which is my Sun. So much truth. My Mother was also a Chiron Aries born 1924. So Chiron was conjunct my Sun when my son was born. I was born to someone who had Chiron in Aries so my sun conjuncts her Chiron. Very interesting This I will ponder.

  14. Any traits for a chiron in aries 6th house daughter?

  15. This is spot on. A lot of physical, emotional and mental suffering in my past, from about 5 years old actually. And guess what – I’m still here!

  16. Not you predicting covid and 2nd civil right and social justice movement 🌚

  17. Jennifer on said:

    Thank you I’m a libra with a chiron in aries,found this very fascinating

  18. I have Chiron 0 degrees in Aries, conjunct Venus and the North Node and heavily afflicted by other planets. The cherry on top is that it’s in the 8th house of death and crazy, stupid deep, emotions. I have been through more things than you can even imagine. I don’t tell my life story because it’s just too much heaviness to throw on other people. They can’t handle it. You’re right. We get up, we brush it under the rug and we move on but I’m 54 now and I can tell you that it all comes back. My body is scarred and broken and my internal life is a mess because I didn’t deal with the problems thoroughly as they occurred. I just left it to pile up for over 50 years until one day I woke up with a mountain of traumas to clear out. Anyone with Chiron in Aries should really consider seeing a therapist if they are unable to unpack it all themselves. Strength is great and all but it really does come with a price.
